Gagi & Pappaw Come to Play!

About a month ago, Matt’s parents came to visit.  Zoe Kate LOVED playing with Gagi and Pappaw…and I’m pretty certain that Gagi and Pappaw loved playing with Zoe Kate.  It was such a treat to have extra feet here in Vilas; chasing ZK around the house is quite tiring (read: sore back).  We had a great time celebrating Sarah’s birthday and walking around town with ZK.  We even got to go to a wedding with them (sans baby) in Asheville that weekend!  Thanks, Gagi and Pappaw for being such great parents and grandparents!


Can I also mention a little detail about the beautiful wedding in Asheville?  A dear friend of Matt’s from high school and college, Rebecca, married Alan in this serene little mountain locale outside in the Appalachian mountains.  We had a great time seeing Matt’s old buddies from his yesteryears.  And then at the reception, the band started playing.  Chuck Folds, what are you doing on stage?  That’s right, Ben Fold’s lesser-known brother has a band in NC that books wedding gigs.  And these brothers definitely came from the same mother – they looked and kind of sounded alike!  Being the big Ben Folds fans that we are, we thoroughly enjoyed being just feet away from interlocking hands with a blood relative.  On the 2-hour drive home, we spent a good amount of time pondering what Thanksgiving looks like in the Folds family these days?  Or what Chuck’s counseling sessions look like?  (come on – you KNOW he has to deal with an inferiority complex!  He chased a music dream.  His brother chased a music dream.  He pleases wedding crowds with the Electric Slide.  His brother entertains thousands at each concert to his original, nationally known hits.).  I wish we were friends with Chuck.  To be able to boogie down with that kind of weight on his shoulders, he seems like a pretty cool guy.
